Tutorial (link): Displacement Maps, Images on irregular surfaces, sand, brick wall

Have you ever wondered how to make an image look like it was "painted on a brick wall" or "Written in sand"? If you, one way to do that sort of thing is by using a technique called "Displacement Maps."

Here are a couple Photoshop tutorials:

I think Russell Brown does this better (more insightful / complete):

(Here using the liquify filter instead of displace. This is a movie, dial-up folks won't want to download this.)

OK, I couldn't resist this one. Several months ago I used the Russell Brown technique on the challenge referenced below. Since then, my student picked it up and ran with it. Last week during a heavy downpour, I lost the ceiling in my bathroom. Liquify alert to the rescue again. I quickly (and I mean quickly because the quality of the sign isn't the greatest) made a note and posted it to the door until we could get the problem fixed. Enjoy my little laugh. If I didn't find humor in this situation, I truly would be in that outhouse in the lower part of the picture.

Just a suggestion.......it would be a big help if you specified that your tutorial is for Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, or whatever.

Not all of us use Photoshop and it would save us a lot of time looking only to learn that it is Photoshop only.

Thanks,

Steve
